MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2013 Edited Dec. 15, 2013

Ashley Berry, thank you for sharing this recipe! I prepared your fudge recipe 12/14/13 and I did make an adjustment: I used a 14-oz. package of chocolate Make and Mold candy wafers instead of chocolate chips! I used the 1 can condensed milk, (14-oz.), the 2 cups of peanuts-I used Planter's Dry-Roasted salted peanuts and the mini marshmallows. I had used a similar recipe before, but have decided to try this one as the other one wouldn't qualify for ME to use for a TOH recipe! Yours is great-I have it in the refrigerator to firm up! I also used a "Hefty" foil 13x9x2" baking pan,1 tsp. butter & the balance of 2 Tbsp. of butter I'd used in the fudge instead of 1 Tbsp. butter! I plan to take this fudge next week to a couple of holiday parties at the local hospital where I volunteer! One of the depts. I work in really likes this particular treat! I plan to put your recipe to use time and again! It's so simple to prepare, too! I'd melted the chocolate/milk, butter and peanuts, then I turned the marshmallows into my large Kitchen Aid mixing bowl and added the chocolate mixture! It worked out very well! delowenstein
